Saving Lives One Stroke at a Time!
Founded in 2011, Planet Swim Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Jacksonville, FL that aims to promote the sport of swimming through education and safety by providing financial aid to families with limited physical and financial access to pools and water safety swimming instruction. At Planet Swim Foundation, we strongly believe that everyone should have an opportunity to learn how to swim regardless of their ability, race, background, and financial status. Our mission is to facilitate the implementation of an affordable and inclusive learn to swim program in North East Florida.
It all started in the summer of 2011, in partnership with Planet Swim LLC and the Metro Kids Konnection, Planet Swim Foundation taught swim lesson to 24 children for 8 weeks. After it’s inaugural season, our drowning prevention program is now live in all 3 major counties in NE Florida (Duval, Clay and St. Johns) and up to date, Planet Swim Foundation has awarded over $50,000 in swimming scholarships which benefited over nearly 1,000 children in our community.
